Pros

They have never made anyone redundant, so it's a great place to look for (or hold onto) a job during a recession.

Cons

Hours are very poor, as a minimum managers will work 10am to 9.30pm one day, then be in at 6am the next day, working until at least 4.20pm. Typical hours are much longer.

Communication in poor; years ago the company was so keen to expand, they were promoting staff from management into District Manager with no formal managerial training. The result is a team of weak and inexperienced regional managers. This has a negative ipact on motivation for the staff, and means that important issues are missed.

Examples of managerial failings include a lack of understanding around Human Resourcing related legislation, no knowledge or training on Health and Safety and Risk assessment.

Advice to Management

The managers are all keen and work hard, at every level in the company. But training and resourcing needs to improve dramatically. Better management will bring in improved communication, clearer goals, and greater motivation.
